romneys made more than $13 million last year, and paid an effective income tax rate of 14%. that's lower than most working americans because most of the romneys' income came from investments, not wages. are the different tax rules confusing, or crucial to the economy? here's sylvia hall. >> reporter: lebron james is what you would call a high wage earner, and he probably pays an income tax rate of up to 35%. but governor mitt romney is a different kind of rich. he makes most of his money from investments, not a paycheck. so he pays a much lower tax rate-- last year, it was 14%. it's because the u.s. tax code treats investment-related earnings, like capital gains, much differently from wages and salaries. >> 95% of the benefits of the lower tax rate on capital gains and dividends goes to the top 20%, and almost half of it goes to people in the top one-tenth of 1%. those are people with incomes above $2.2 million a year. >> reporter: why does it matter to the tax man how you earn money? j.d. foster is with the conservative heritage foundation. >> a capital gain is a tax on a change in weal

romney actually invested thousands of dollars in that video site youku just last year. so now he's criticizing the president for not doing enough to crack down on the type of company that he himself has invested in in china! and believe me, it is not just youku. through bain he has invested in the chinese company gome. investing in uniview helps the chinese government spy on its own people. he's also, mitt romney, invested in a chinese oil company through bain. he claims these investments were all part of a blind trust meaning that he didn't know what was in it, of course, only his lawyer knew, but his lawyer sold shares in that chinese company and the chinese companies in june just as the china trade issue was heating up on the that this blind trust is not coordinating with the campaign. i don't think so. in fact, in december, his campaign acknowledged that romney's trust would not actually qualify as blind under federal standards telling abc news the blind trust does not meet the exacting federal blind trust standard. if governor romney is elected president, that will change. i g

betting on romney. romney has known him for 35 years. he visited him on the campaign trail in israel. and i even saw one of mitt romney's books on netanyahu's study shelf in jer use lem. he even appears in a pro romney ad in florida. >> the fact is, that every day that passes, iran gets closer and closer to nuclear bombs. >> right now, the candidates are duelling over how to handle the conflict. >> the president's decision not to meet with netanyahu, prime minister of israel when the prime minister is here is a mistake. >> so, you know, governor romney is suggesting that we should start another war, he should say so. >> tonight, the israeli response to iran "outfront." earlier, i spoke with israel's council general in new york and asked him for his reaction to ahmadinejad's comments. >> well, i think it's the wrong framing to look at it as you know, iran versus israel. this is a much larger issue. it's the world, it's the west versus iran. i think that what bothers them, what really threatens them is everything that we stand for. not necessarily the things that we do. and i say we, i mean

vote for romney than it was a year ago. and thatself other swing states are also starting to line up behind the president. joining us now from california, former u.s. secretary of labor and professor at berkeley, professor of economics no less, robert reich, author of a new book, "beyond outrage." here in new york is my colleague krystal ball. just a few moments ago a rather tired and disheveled romney was speaking to a few supporters. take a listen to this. >> wait a second, wait a second. romney/ryan, romney/ryan, there we go. that's great. >> he's having to introduce them there to his name and his running mate's name. >> they were getting the hang of it. >> it was good. it's a bit of a problem though, isn't it, because some of his advisers are actually saying their internal polling shows that they're still in this fight and yet all the published polling that we have access to suggests that things are slipping away. >> that's right. and a lot has been made, you know, we have the debates coming up, they could be pivotal and they certainly could be but we've heard that in the past

code and keep the wealthy paying far more federal tax than anybody else. on the subject of romney's own money, there is unfairness going on. the democrats say. this. >> mitt romney paid just 14.1% in taxes last year. he keeps millions in bermuda and the cayman islands. he won't release his tax returns before 2010. maybe instead of attacks others or taxes romney should come clean on his. >> bill: the governor has come clean on his. he released 2011 tax return. he paid a bit more than 14% in federal taxes because his income is earned from investments and that's the long-term capital gains rate. so, what's the problem? president obama wants to raise the cap gains tax which might very well slow down investment in american companies. i certainly wouldn't buy as many stocks because the risk/reward becomes stacked against the investor. the stock market is already a casino with manipulation all over the place. there is no question that if the feds make investing less profitable by raising the tax on gains, there will be less investment. and if there is less investment, there will be fewer j

election year it is the responsibility of the leaders to also meet with the opposition candidate. romney has the right to meet with all of those world leaders too if obama does. if obama doesn't romney doesn't. martha: interesting. >> the administration doesn't want to get romney in those pictures with world leaders, he'll look presidential, they don't want it. they get nothing out of it. if romney meets with these leaders he gets everything out of it, he looks presidential, he looks like he has the ability to be on that world stage. if obama meets with him he doesn't get anything, he's already met with them. martha: that is a very interesting point, kt. what he might squander, president obama in the process of trying to avoid that tit for tat as you say is the opportunity to do the job of being president. i mean this is a critical moment, i certainly don't have to tell you, unfolding here in the middle east and i think doesn't it beg the question of simply fitting the job description at this moment? >> yeah, but you know what, i've been in white houses during election years, the job is
